Having watched all of the debates (and over the duration periodically changed my mind) I’ve finally settled on my dream team from the current field of largely no-hoper hopefuls. They’re Amy Kloburchar with Pete Buttigeig as her running mate. Why? Simple? They’re the smartest and least cliché dependent.
Buttigeig is making considerable headway in the polls but has a stumbling block with black and Latino voters. That’s presumably due to his homosexuality, black African nations for example, openly demonstrating antipathy and many treat homosexuality as a serious criminal offence. With the Latinos possibly this is the Catholicism factor.
But no matter as most attention focuses on the Presidential candidate. In debate Amy, a very smart women with excellent credentials eats her opponents and I believe would make a monkey out of Trump. That certainly won’t be the case with colourless Biden, fortunately now fading in the polls and who brings absolutely zilch to the table. His sole policy platform it would seem is that he’s not Trump.
Democracies have repeatedly shown they love fresh faces. Amy is the obvious one to garner an enthusiastic public support. The primaries are to commence soon and are likely to be contentious and inconclusive, thereby inviting someone new to carve through the morass.
Don’t write her off.
